Break the Core: MEGA POST

Written by on July 8, 2020

So… I’ve been forgetting to make posts, so I’m throwing 3 at you this week.

2020-07-06: This Is Fresh/Old Skool

Peace, love, unity, respect, and responsibility, PLURR. You might have seen it at the end of a Break the Core show post here and there but perhaps didn’t know the meaning. PLURR is a term used and created by the rave community that defines the principles and expectations of members attending a rave. While intended for events, the principles are often carried outside of raves and into daily life.

One of the earliest and most notable uses of peace, love, and unity (PLU) was in response to a fight that broke out during a rave in the early 1990’s. Soon after, the first R (respect) was added. Likely to express support for the diversity in rave culture, thus creating the more commonly used PLUR. The final R (responsibility) was likely added mainly in response to drug abuse within rave culture, but has many other uses and good intentions. The PLURR statement (with the final R included) is not as widely used or accepted as the earlier PLUR, but I feel that responsibility is an important aspect in life so I choose to include it.

This weeks playlist includes music and recordings released around and between 1969 and 1999. Fun fact: most of them are older than me. The genres in this mix range from early hardcore and happycore, to jungle, early breakcore, as well as a few songs that helped shape what those genres and others became. Despite the intro there isn’t actually any house music in this playlist, welcome to my home of The Cores. If you’re looking for house though, check out the next one below: NCS Favorites!

So there’s your history lesson for today, now lets get the party started with some OLD SKOOL CHOONZ! PLURR~
